After seeing the video in which Yamaha presents the 2009 R1, it is good to know what the competition has to offer and Suzuki’s alternative is the GSX-R 1000 K9. This video is more of a disappointment in comparison with the one I linked with, but not the bike as Suzuki rode the winds of change pretty good lately, ending up among the favorites of its class.
Suzuki lines up to the tendencies for 2009 and ads white on the list of colors for the GSX-R 600, GSX-R 750 and the Hayabusa. As you may have noticed, these are the bikes that don’t feature any updates, the 2009 GSX-R 1000 being excluded.
The new color schemes and graphics are among the most appropriate for these models so far, leaving no questions to be asked related to technical evolution.
Suzuki Great Britain announces GSX-R1000 Cameron Donald and GSX-R600 Bruce Anstey replicas as celebration of the Suzuki Relentless by TAS team victories in the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport categories.
The special edition motorcycles are production-based and, certainly, a dream came true for fans of motorcycle racing. They feature the team’s coloring and graphics and exert a magical attraction even from the pictures.
George Cheesman, marketing manager of Suzuki GB referring to this subject, "The Relentless by TAS team achieved incredible success at this year’s TT, almost delivering a clean sweep of wins. To celebrate this, we are pleased to offer these special edition models via the authorised dealer network in the team livery, with celebratory graphics in addition too."
Retail price for the GSX-R1000 Donald replica is £9,170 while for the GSX-R600 Anstey replica is £7,403.
Manufacturers that are successful on the track often apply this strategy in order to get more money on virtually the same product and for customer paid commercial. But as you take a look at the bikes you understand why each and every time fans compete for these bikes and then compete on them.
Suzuki presents today a dream come true: the Limited Edition MotoGP inspired Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Riders longing to look like Capirossi and Vermeulen must know that Suzuki has made this new limited edition GSX-R1000 available in special blue color, exactly like the one of the Suzuki GSV-R. Their strategy is to allow Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen, as well as the team’s fans, to take to the road a GP-inspired colored version of one of the best track racing bikes ever made.
A number of exactly 800 lucky future owners from Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, South Africa, UK, Spain and other countries will be riding this racing bike with headlight. On top of the 2008 Grand Prix base colour, a set of both Capirossi and Vermeulen graphics is also available in some markets.

When you talk about two wheels there are few chances you won’t be expressing your love for races, a fully opened throttle, the way it sounds, the smell of burned gasses and eventually rubber. But, in contrast with all this, big motorbike houses create increasingly restrictive rules concerning pollution and they invest big bucks in learning how to effectively exploit biological fuel.
A very interesting example is the work done by Team Alstare, which ever since 2007 has spend time developing small engines for bikes and quads which are planned to run on bio fuel.
The big objective of this practice is to improve the process in which the plant becomes fuel in order to obtain a stronger bang, optimizing this way the costs and properly exploiting the resources.
And if you were thinking that all this is only bla bla bla and nothing consistent, I must tell you that a remarkable result is an agricultural quad powered by a mixture of 85% bioethanol and 15% gasoline. Also, Alstare presented a GSX-R1000 Superstock prototype using the same recipe and keeping the proportions.
The culmination point was on the track of Monza where Alan Cathcart made a demonstration of power on the two revolutionary wheels. The machine, made in Belgium, is now a benchmark bio racing engines.
Let’s just hope that in a few years, respecting the EU regulations, there will be attempts of Superbike and MotoGP ecological races. The ice was broken and big results wait on the corner!
Suzuki will produce the GSX-R1000 under yet another coloring and have it called a limited edition model. Color combination for this unique ride will be pearl white and metallic silver and all authorized dealers will sell it for the equivalent of $15,840.
George Cheeseman, head of the marketing department at Suzuki GB comments: “Customer demand in the past has proven how popular the limited colour runs are, so we are pleased to be able to offer this addition to the already popular GSX-R (...)
Is this the bike on which Chris Vermeulen plans on winning the 2009 MotoGP? We’ve come across this photo from the first tests of Chris Vermeulen on the evolution version of the GSV-R with which the Australian pilot will attempt to conquer the 2009 MotoGP title. Perfectly reflecting the team’s strategy, the bike, equipped with sidecar and car wheels as balance and the aerodynamic features do all the trick. I don’t know how a shoulder-to-shoulder final lap will look with this thing on the track, but the idea is daring, challenging and funny.
The friends at SuperBike Magazine have made a reflective comparison between the most addictive middleweight superbike motorcycles, the Ducati 848, the Honda CBR600RR, the Suzuki GSX-R 600 and the Triumph Daytona 675. What results is a lot of fun and a competitive track incursion.
Stamford Superbike in the United Kingdom inspired of Chris Vermeulen’s Suzuki which he rode at the 2007 Australian MotoGP as a tribute to Barry Sheene and created a limited edition GSX-R1000 which has all the chances to be named the best looking GSX-R1000 of all times, or AT LEAST the one featuring the most beautiful paintjob.
If we already caught your attention and your eyes are now stuck on the pictures you should know that the company in the UK will sell the one of only six produced (...)
To the team of Suzuki engineers responsible for the GSX-R1000, Own The Racetrack is not just a slogan, it is a way of life. A life dedicated to making the most successful open-class motorcycle in the history of production-based racing even better. By applying the latest technology and the most recent hard-fought racing experience. And keeping the GSX-R1000 well ahead of the would-be competition.
A revised, compact combination of chassis and engine, fitted with advanced electronics, effective suspension and radial-mount brakes to not only make more power and accelerate harder but also to handle better, with the goal being a quicker lap time around a racetrack. Ignore the lights and mirrors and the fact that this is also the cleanest running four-cylinder 600cc motorcycle that Suzuki has ever built, and it is easy to imagine the GSX-R600 rolling directly out of a race shop.
The answer to the question can be found by looking at the pictures with this police special Suzuki GSX-R 750, a project that could easily become reality as the crowded streets are in more need of a quick response in a hazard situation.
Having its fairing removed, modified fuel tank, front and rear end together with the small final muffler, this motorcycle was transformed into a street fighter with a unique feature: it really is prepared to fight against everything that contradicts the (...)
Yoshimura Suzuki team has put an end to their wet test at Dunlop Tires Huntsville, Ala., and finally expressed the formed impressions.
Dunlop’s figure-eight track is equipped with an extensive sprinkler system intended to simulate wet weather conditions and that is exactly what it did yesterday. It provided to the defending AMA Superbike Championship Ben Spies, six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin and two-time AMA Supersports Champion Tommy Hayden a full day of test running in the (...)
The Superbike machine of Max Neukirchner is now also available for the road.
Suited in StVZO trim, Suzuki wants to sell the GSX-R 1000 “power max” to racing fans in limited number of items.
At the price of 13790 Euro ($18,884.97), the bike comes with Neukirchner’s signature and a personal note on the tail, a Six-Pack Energy-Drinks and sticker from Dark Dog - the Superbike sponsor.
Imagine you just purchased a brand new Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycle two months ago, and it was stolen right before your eyes as you were eating in your favorite restaurant. Not to worry, you are fully protected by the full coverage motorcycle insurance policy your motorcycle lender required you to get. Right?
In most cases, not exactly, if you look into the details of the motorcycle insurance policy you purchased. The reason is that most full coverage motorcycle insurance policies will (...)
In 2005 the GSX-R1000 re-wrote the rule book for liter class supersport bikes. For 2006 the flagship GSX-RTM is poised to blow away the competition. Boasting works inspired technology and class leading performance, the biggest GSX-R combines incredible acceleration with razor sharp handling.
This is the most awkward bike I have ever seen. But if you want to be noticed, you can bid on eBay for this one of a kind GSXR/1000.
